Cavaliers Report Cards 2017-18: Part 2

Jeff Green: C

How does one grade the season Jeff Green had for Cleveland? Does he get heralded for his early success? Or does he receive heat for not being nearly as consistent as he should’ve been?

Early in the season, Green was part of a second unit that also featured Dwyane Wade and Kyle Korver. Those three were leading one of the best benches in the NBA.

Then, of course, the NBA trade deadline happened and the team got all switched up.

Green had many nights after February where he was better off not suiting up. His ineffectiveness was a real problem for Cleveland in a time where they were trying to get the new faces they acquired situated. It was tough for the team to keep putting him in big-time moments without him showing up.

What earns Green the “C” grade ultimately is the strong string of performances during the Eastern Conference Finals. It was then when Green stepped up as the fill-in second option to LeBron James when Kevin Love was struggling. Green’s Game 7, while Love was out with a concussion, was arguably his greatest moment of the season.
